B.C. Ferries is launching a pilot project offering limited direct service on select days between its Blubber Bay terminal on Texada Island and Little River terminal in Comox, starting on Wednesday.
The project was developed in co-operation with the Northern Sunshine Coast Ferry Advisory Committee for the convenience of Texada Island travellers.
Every Wednesday and Saturday, the first sailing on the Powell River-to-Comox route to leave Powell River’s Westview terminal will make a stop at Blubber Bay to load a maximum of 10 standard vehicles prior to continuing on to Comox.
On the last sailing leaving Comox, Texada-bound customers will have an opportunity to sail directly to Blubber Bay. Regardless of deck space available, only the first 10 standard vehicles to arrive for each applicable sailing will be loaded on the vessel.
Commercial vehicles are not included in the project.
The project will be in place for up to two years with ongoing analysis of its viability.
